I illustrated the marketing poster and t-shirt for this 50’s inspired diner called Anne’s Family Diner, owned and operated by a husband and wife team whose likenesses are illustrated here.
They were a pleasure to work with, and were really happy with how it turned out.

New line of e-juice from Adrenaline Vapors that I illustrated the labels for, featuring a has-been 80’s headbanger screaming into his microphone and dropping his gut.
When we were finished, I provided the labels in a variety of different colors to be used for each flavor in the line.

Custom T-Shirt illustration I created for the Hot Rod Power Tour Kansas City 2017.
Always a fun challenge to draw cars, which can be very hard to get right. I had to us a lot of reference photos for this one to get the details of the models just right (or close enough anyway).

I was commissioned to design this poster for the new documentary about the Phyrst bar in State College, Pennsylvania by Blue White TV. The bar has a tremendous history, and it’s really great to be a part of it in a tiny way.
The client wanted a crazy 60’s color scheme to set the tone for the theme so I went with lots of yellows and purples. Awesome to be a part of this production!

Owner of the Heavenly brand resort hired me to create this t-shirt design for his ranch, illustrating his likeness and his dog chilling on the beach in a hammock.
I tried to render this one a little differently than my previous beach designs, using a softer pencil for the lineart instead of a thicker, chunkier ink brush and then doing more of the rendering in the coloring stage. I like the result!

Easily one of my favorite projects ever! Official Alien illustration I created for the backglass of the new Limited Edition Pinball Machine licensed from 20th Century Fox and built by Heighway Pinball.
We had to turn this around on a super quick deadline, racing to release the artwork on Alien Day in 2017. The illustration is huge – twenty eight inches square, so I had to pump a ton of detail in every nook and cranny. HR Giger, the genius behind the Alien creature concept, was one of my very first artistic inspirations when I was a kid, so it was a great compliment to be able to play around in his shadow a little.

Victory Road

I had fun creating this demon driving a fast car with a hot chick on the front. The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition. If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation. The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes. I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.

Weird and fun commission poster I illustrated of a Venus Fly Trap emerging from a toilet in a decrepit bathroom chomping on a guitar.
The artwork was done on request for a private collector who packed this piece with symbolism that probably only makes sense to him, haha. But sometimes, that can be the most fun, to just draw and explore, and not be so pinned down to reality. This was created completely in Manga Studio, and I published a live digital painting demonstration on YouTube as I worked.

I was hired to create a series of illustrations for Activision’s Call of Duty Zombies video game used during a promotional campaign they ran on social media during the game’s launch.
One of my favorite projects ever, for a series I’ve been a huge fan of. The clients wanted their different iconic zombie characters in their new 80s themed zombie shooter illustrated using my style, which was hugely flattering. Each illustration was used on Activision’s social media during the countdown to the release of the game. The illustrations were drawn in a way to encourage fans of the game to insert their photos behind the zombies so it appeared like they were being attacked.

The design, Military Brats, depicts the children of Navy, Marines, Army, and Airforce soldiers emerging from a moving box on a base, coping with the uncertain life of constant upheaval from base to base.

It was a fun challenge to depict each child in a way that captures the aspects of each particular branch of the military.

Album cover called “Turn People Into Food” I illustrated for the heavy metal band Crusty Old Toad featuring the first giant toad monk holding a plate of body parts that I’ve ever drawn!
The band and I didn’t take the art too seriously – we wanted something dark but still funny and absurd. I had more fun drawing the uppity aristocrat characters puking their guts out than anything else I think. Check out their music:

Fun limited color silkscreen t-shirt I created for a Shrimp Gumbo festival in Alabama featuring a handsome shrimp serenading a beautiful shrimps and the rest of the beach-goers.
The design was a fun challenge because the client liked my colorful full-color beach designs, and wanted something similar. But we could only use a limited silk-screen palette. I used halftones to cheat on some colors. We chose to draw the scene at night to make it unique to the previous year’s designs.

Description:

Talk about a dream job!  I was fortunate enough to be hired to create an officially licensed t-shirt of Marvel superheroes to be sold in retail outlets.

The project was an immense challenge, as I tried to incorporate my style into the design, while also making sure to not deviate too much from the art direction from Marvel (which there was quite a lot of!).  This was designed in full color, to be separated later for simulated process.  Overall, I’m very pleased with how the design turned out, and awestruck that I had this opportunity.
